After much procrastination and deliberation I am delighted to present my latest design. With the help of my Mum, her patient and talented seamstress and many cups of tea we have come up with a Classic Apron for Chandler House. Hopefully with time (and more tea!) – we will continue to add new apron designs to the Linen Range.
It really is a Herculean task to find beautiful aprons that are well-constructed and thought about. An apron is about protecting garments from the by-products of dirty labour, granted, but this is just about where most aprons end. I hope to design beautiful aprons that go beyond their basic function and become something more. Thus I have added details to corners, tried different apron string thicknesses, doubled the amount of gorgeous linen used, folded over, tucked in, brass ring-pulled and added an original and charming embroidery to the face of the apron.
An Apron is a Useful thing.
